Music menu is amazing, food ok too

This is one of the must-visit places in Nashville, which is flooded with very good restaurants/bars that serve up as much music as food. Bluebird seems to have a evolved into good food place, but an even better music place. There are 80 seats, and you pretty well have to reserve well in advance to... read more

We came for songwriters night. It was our first time at the Bluebird. They need to work on how to get people lined up for the shows. It was a bit caotic when we were lining up outside, but it is definitely worth the wait. Get there early! The songwriters night was amazing. We listened to a bunch of local... More

you haven't "done" Nashville until you have been here. From open mike nights to scheduled entertainers, you will feel like your in the music business. They treat you right, it's small cozy and friendly....but...don't talk during the shows

Go here for the music first and the food second and you won't be disappointed!! The food probably isn't what you'd expect but it was good, not great. Drinks were reasonably priced. Service was good.

we went to a Monday Open Mic event and it was all we hoped it would be. The doors open at 5:30 and there is a line by that time. The food is just average but the ability to listen to talent onstage is really gratifying. I sat next to a man who came from Canada for a week to... More

The Blue Bird is a small and intimate setting to hear some great artists and songwriters looking for their big break. We listened to 10 different artists in one show on a Sunday night when they have the Songwriter Showcase shows. It was awesome! We will go back.

What a great place to see and hear the next country superstars. Servers were great. Not a bad seat in the house. A must while visiting Nashville.

We attend an "In The Round" show at the Bluebird on Friday night and it nothing short of awesome. The music, service and atmosphere were all amazing. The food is bar food, but still really good. I highly recommend a visit to the Bluebird, I know I will going again!

many occasions to go . Used to have supper there a lot . Daughter has retired but goes often to hear who the new talent is. the atmosphere is seriously saturated with people knowledgeable and devoted to listening. Lots of tourists there these days because of the TV show Nashville but talking is not permitted during performances which musicians are... More
